The file contain both the aiv and maps folder. In order for the Ai to
work, you must overwrite the aiv folder and maps folder in stronghold
crusader folder ( backup before overwrite ).
So what's new in this pack ? ^^
As fas as i making aiv files for the crusader campaign, i find some
mission maps is not designed well, the ai can not utilize well so i
thinking of total remake the map.
So the pack will make the crusader trail mission totally new not only
with the aiv but also the maps.
_ The Ai will built more effective with the new remade maps. ( Ex :
Pig, Richard will always build 4 iron mines and the mine are near them
_ Player will have some disadvantage to increase the difficult of the
game. Limited resources make you think of different strategy.
_ Some mission I adding soldier for the Ai, so you will see this on
the map. It not only increase the defense of the Ai, but also prevent
the player using rush strategy. Imagine the rat that have Swordman and
crossbowman to defense.
Project progress :
_ The Proj just halfway, so only these mission you will see different : 1,2,3..16,19...25,28,29,33,34,36,37,39,40,42,43,49,50
_ Aiv castle layout :
Richard : Complete ( 8 castle )
Caliph : Complete ( 8 castle )
Pig : 7 castle
Rat : 7 castle
Sultan : 6 castle
Saladin : 4 castle
Wolf : 3 castle
Snake : 3 castle
You can play other mission but you will find that the castle layout does not fit the map.
Here are some picture to review ( click to zoom )
In these missions, you will see the map from the top right are
different from the original.
Another example of the final mission ( mission 50 : Final Victory ).
I change the position of the player to the center of the map => It is more challenge for the player
The rat with sword and crossbow man :
The first mission, you will face the Sultan with more soldier, so even with 4000 gold, you can rush to win him easily. Beside that you will find no iron mines or quarry around you. ( Hint : There are only one entrance, so you can use the given stone to build gate in the front and you already know that sultan will never build siege machine ).
Enjoy ^^. Please feedback for me to improve this pack better.
